Ani Difranco – As Is lyrics

You can't hide
Behind social graces
So don't try
To be all touchy feely
Cuz you lie
In my face of all places
But I've got no
Problem with that really

What bugs me
Is that you believe what you're saying
What bothers me
Is that you don't know how you feel
What scares me
Is that while you're telling me stories
You actually
Believe that they are real

And I've got
No illusions about you
And guess what?
I never did
And when I said
When I said i'll take it
I meant,
I meant as is

Just give up
And admit you're an asshole
You would be
In some good company
I think you'd find
That you friends would forgive you
Or maybe I
Am just speaking for me

Cuz when I look around
I think this, this is good enough
And I try to laugh
At whatever life brings
Cuz when I look down
I just miss all the good stuff
When I look up
I just trip over things

And I've got
No illusions about you...

You can't hide
Behind social graces
Cuz I don't buy it
Like everyone else
And you can lie
In my face of all places
Just don't
Lie to yourself

Cuz I've got
No illusions about you
And guess what?
I never did
And when I say
When I say i'll take it
I mean,
I mean as is...

... As is...
